Thanks for taking a picture of me Jana! You are amazing!



Well, it's me of course! Hi, I'm Scott, just an ordinary guy who loves life and all the little nuances that it brings! Simply put, I'm a father to a wonderful son, a husband to a beautiful wife, and an amateur photographer who enjoys looking at the world through a piece of glass! I took up photography a couple of years ago, after having gastric bypass surgery. Since 12/07, I have lost 180 pounds, but found a real passion for documenting life with my camera. I could say that the big names out there have inspired me, and they have, But my true inspiration comes from the people I meet everyday who share the same thoughts and zeal I have for photography. We are truly blessed with some really great photographers around Nashville. So, what are you waiting for.... ...grab a camera, snap some pics, and enjoy life to the fullest!

Several hours wasted, loads of info learned!

I’m all about learning, there’s no doubt.  Just ask my wife how much I spend on the interwebz looking and searching for new information, or how to do something different! 

Well, the other day I was perusing the multitude of blogs I read daily, and I stumbled across someone Scott Kelby had mentioned before, but had paid no attention to. Design by Firgs turned out to be one of the most amazing cornucopia of tutorials, downloads and advice that I had ever seen!  Her interview series with some of the best photographers and graphic designers is outstanding.  Her tutorials are very easy to read and follow.  And her free, that’s right, I said FREE download section is full of some great stuff!

Had on over to Design by Firgs and take a look.  While your there, make sure your register for her latest giveaway, a 16 x 20 rolled print from UPrinting.



Another site that is mentioned on Design by Firgs is TipSquirrel.  A pretty cool site with some more Photoshop type tutorials.  My favorite section of TipSquirrel is called “Inspire-O-Tron”  Just a neat little gimmick to help get the artistic and photographic juices flowing.  The Inspire-O-Tron is typically a single word, followed by a sentence. 

Today’s is:

Still Life

It doesn’t have to be on a table indoors, or fruit!



Have fun, and enjoy!

Scott, you are learning so fast and your photos are excellent. Hopefully,when things are better here, I can find something new to try. My secret hobby I'm thinking of it to learn to play the hammer dulcimer. I used to be very musical. Played guitar, clarinet and saxophone. Unfortunately the hammer dulcimer is fairly expensive so I will have to save up. I"m so glad you found something you loved to do.
